Saxl Rose is a super talented saxophone player that performs covers of popular songs via – you guessed it – his sax. If you take a look through the video upload history on Saxl’s channel, you will see that most of his covers involve a blend of hip-hop and pop songs; however, as of recently, Saxl decided to venture into the world of metal.
Saxl’s most recent saxophone cover involves that of the Lamb Of God song “Laid To Rest,” which is a song off of the band’s third studio album, Ashes of the Wake. While Axl has the instrumentation associated with the song playing off another speaker, he plays along to the track with his sax.
This performance is super awesome! We love ourselves some saxophone (we really love how Rivers Of Nihil blend that of sax with death metal). You can find the video of Saxl covering the Lamb Of God track below.
In other Lamb Of God related news, the band have been on the road to support their upcoming new album Omens (which is out this Friday).
